Green Waste Collection Restarts 4 June

The fortnightly kerbside garden waste collection service will resume in West Cheshire on Thursday 4 June 2020.

Please put your green bin out by 7am on your normal scheduled collection day. However,  they may be emptied at a different time than usual so please leave your bin out.

Waste must be contained within the correct garden container provided.

Additional garden waste not placed in the container will not be collected. Excess garden waste can be composted, taken to your nearest recycling centre or set aside and then placed into your garden waste container ready for the next collection.

If your bin is too heavy to be moved and loaded onto the vehicle safely, it will not be emptied and you will need to arrange to remove some of the weight from the bin for the next scheduled collection.

If your recycling, garden waste or domestic waste has not been collected on your scheduled collection day you can report a missed collection online.

Household waste and recycling collections will continue as normal.

Green waste collection was suspended in March at the start of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown as staff sickness levels in the workforce increased, and this decision ensured the domestic waste and recycling service could continue to operate as normal.

Staff sickness levels have fallen in recent weeks and more staff are now available to collect residents’ garden waste in addition to providing the usual service.
